PUSHBACK: Teen Playing ‘Knockout Game’ Shot Twice by Victim

A teen playing the “Knockout Game” in Lansing, Michigan unwittingly targeted a concealed carry permit holder and was shot twice. He survived and is now in jail.

AWR Hawkins writes:  As Breitbart News previously reported, the “Knockout Game” thrives in areas where victims are unarmed. In the “game,” teens approach a stranger on the sidewalk or in an alley and punch the stranger in an attempt to knock him or her out. A punch that results in a knockout scores one point.

WILX in Lansing reported that teenager Marvell Weaver, who is black, tried to knock out a father who was standing at a bus stop waiting for his daughter to arrive. Instead of simply punching the father, Weaver tried a variation on the “game” by trying to taze the man. The taser malfunctioned, and the father pulled a .40 cal handgun and shot the teenager twice.

Weaver admits to previously knocking out six or seven people on other days before targeting the man who shot him. He said being shot by the father at the bus stop was “a lesson learned.”

Weaver is now serving one year in jail.

  4. I was waiting for this to happen. Good for the father.
    OK, it’s pretty impossible to stop the sucker punch BUT I can’t help but think this could lead to a time where the “Sons of O” concerned discover that spectators will start protecting a victim by letting rip. Probably to a huge round of applause.
